Things to Do in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is regularly considered as one of the hot tourist destinations as far as the recreational activities are concerned. The constant buzz of modern life and the ghostly prevalence of ancient life on the island will keep any traveler occupied without a moment to spare.

Planetarium Sky Show: The Space Theatre is one of the largest planetariums in the world, boasting a 75-foot domed roof. It is situated next to the Cultural Center Complex at the waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui. The theater presents both Omnimax screenings and star shows. Forty-minute to hour-long programs are presented Tuesday through Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Fridays from 1:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Sundays and holidays from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Star Ferry: The ferry service between Tsim Sha Tsui and Hong Kong Island began in 1898 and took 40 minutes to one hour. Now, the journey takes less than seven minutes with ferries running every ten minutes or less (during peak hours). Hours of operation are 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. The cigar-shaped boats look a bit different, but they are extremely safe and handle the often choppy harbor quite well. If it is your first time on the ferry, stay out of the air-conditioning and take in the fresh breeze and magnificent views.

Causeway Bay Shopping: If you want to shop or just want to see why Hong Kong is often referred to as a shopper's paradise, come to Causeway Bay. From trend-setting fashion houses, designer clothes, exclusive outlets line Hennessy and Yee Woo streets, to many traditional Chinese wares, all are available on the side-streets housing Jardine's Bazaar. If you prefer department stores, the Japanese have a number of large stores here including the centerpiece, 10-story Sogo in the middle of it all just above the MTR Station. Finally, the modern (and big, of course) Times Square shopping/office complex dominates the southern part of the area.

Harbour City: Harbour City is Hong Kong's largest and most popular shopping center with 700 shops and boutiques, 50 restaurants, two cinemas, three top hotels, a 500-room serviced apartment, a private club, 2,000 car parking spaces, 4.4 million square foot office towers, etc.

Ocean Park: Ocean Park is Southeast Asia's largest leisure complex which lies between Aberdeen and Repulse Bay. It provides a great day out for family and friends. Major attractions include a shark tunnel, an aviary, a butterfly house, the 72-meter Sky Tower, the Dinosaur Discovery Trail, a cable car and the world's second-longest outdoor escalator, marineland shows and exhibitions, a huge roller coaster and other thrilling rides.

Waterworld: Waterworld is a good place to cool off on a hot summer's day. It is located next to Ocean Park's lowland entrance which contains several pools with many slides and diving platforms, a winding ‘river’ you can float down, a rapids ride, and even a pool with a sandy beach and waves. The park is open daily from 9.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m. in July and August, from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. in June and September. The park is closed from October through May.

Yuen Po Street Bird Garden: A unique attraction that pays homage to the Chinese fixation with caged song birds is the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden where 70 different bird stalls, each elaborately decorated, fill the air with their own harmony.
